Sloopy, it depends on the wall thickness of the pipe used, as well as the thickness of the cross section, but on foams I'd use store bought clamps.

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

I have one of those crappy, red lanterns. The Deitz looks a far sight better.
I have two Weems and Plath yacht lanterns (Don't judge me, they came with the boat!) and I use them regularly.
